Welcome Dr. Kyle Adam Blair, Assistant Director for Mink Pack

Choral Club is very pleased to introduce Dr. Kyle Adam Blair, the new Assistant Music Director for Mink Pack. Laura Morrell continues as Artstic Director of Mink Pack. Kyle and Laura will be working closely together to design and present the Mink Pack’s new show for 2018-19.

ABOUT DR. KYLE ADAM BLAIR

Dr. Kyle Adam Blair is an active pianist, musical director, and vocal coach in the San Diego area who specializes in the performance of American contemporary music. As a pianist, Kyle not only performs works from established 20th century American composers such as Copland, Ruggles, Crumb, and Carter, but also champions music by living composers, with whom he often collaborates.

Among Blair’s notable collaborations are numerous appearances with the La Jolla Symphony under the direction of Steven Schick, performances with Bang-On-A-Can All-Stars in Los Angeles, Seattle, and San Diego, and appearances with redfishbluefish at the Ojai Music Festival, sharing the stage with the likes of eighthblackbird’s Lisa Kaplan, The Bad Plus, and members of the Mark Morris Dance Group.

He is currently slated to release his solo debut record in the coming months. The record, entitled “Palm Sunday,” consists of a collection of solo piano works composed by New England-based composer Stuart Saunders Smith, a frequent collaborator with Blair.

An active vocal coach in San Diego as well, Blair has acted as a music director, pianist and/or composer for ten major theatrical productions in the San Diego area in the last four years, several of which were theatrical premieres performed at La Jolla Playhouse, as well as multiple shows with La Jolla’s renowned JCompany under the direction of Joey Landwehr.

Blair earned his Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Contemporary Music Performance at the University of California, San Diego in 2018 under the tutelage of Aleck Karis.

Mink Pack Performance and Member Mixer for New and Returning Singers

Join us at Horton Plaza Park August 6th for a FREE concert by Choral Club’s Mink Pack ensemble, and mixer for new and returning members.

If you are interested in singing with Choral Club, or just want to find out more about the group, join us for a FREE Mink Pack (small ensemble) performance at Horton Plaza Park, Saturday August 6 from 2-4pm. This will be a great opportunity to hear our sound and to meet other members in advance of our new season auditions beginning August 29.

The park is a public open space with lots of table and amphitheater seating and some umbrellas, so bring a picnic and enjoy the afternoon with us. Mink Pack will be singing a Mostly-Motown repertoire including lots of 60’s-girl-group numbers. Members of Choral Club will be on hand to answer questions, take prospective-member info, and just generally have a good time.
